It’s the end of 2012 and the cultural and religious celebrations have begun. Peace plays an important role in all of these celebrations. Sometimes, it takes a violent act that shatters our sense of being safe to make us realize the importance of making peace a priority in our daily lives and being proactive to prevent others from causing mayhem.
It may not be possible to control the behavior of everyone but there’s one person you are totally in control of and that person is you. Be the change you want to see in the world. Become an advocate for peace in your personal life and I’m confident you’ll influence many to do the same.
Together we can start a ripple effect for peace
